Which 2012 MLB Import will have the most success?
 
The upcoming season will have some high profile Imports making their MLB Debuts. Most of the notable Imports are from Japan's NPB and a Cuban home run champion. Which 2012 MLB Import will have the most success?

I went with a dark horse, Aoki. He has Ichiro type skills, let's see if those skills translate to Ichiro type stats. He has been overlooked with all of the bigger name Imports also making their debut this season.

Yu Darvish as well. I've seen the kid pitch, he's got potential.

I think it would be easier if this question would be rephrased as: "Which pitcher and batter will have the best season.." Because I would go with Darvish as the pitcher and Aoki as the hitter

Then that would have been too easy :D, it's like the MVP topic, all players are included in the discussion.

Drew Smyly has put up a very formidable start to his rookie season in the Majors. he keeps this up and this kid might be special.
